  1. Mark King for me. All of those fantastic slap and fingerstyle lines he came up with throughout the 1980s really are the reason I wanted to pick up a bass guitar in the first place. Let's not be shy here - the man is a pioneer. 😎
  2. Michael Hutchence was another one that came from nowhere. If someone is ill or old it’s almost like it’s ok that they’ve passed, that they’re no longer suffering. When they die alone in a hotel room, accidentally or not, that makes it so much more saddening.
  3. Pretty much all those deaths in 2016 starting with Bowie. Subconsciously you think “well, that’s our major celebrity passing of the year”. Then Prince went. Wow. George Michael was a bigger shock I think because at that point in the year we must all have been thinking “thank god this year is nearly over”, then George went. Chris Cornell, Keith Flint and more recently Boon Gould really affected me because these were MY musical icons. I hope they’ve found peace.
  4. Have a quick read of this, then PM me if you're still interested please mate. Cheers! 😎
  5. I still have some copies left, just in case anyone is interested...:)
  6. Credit where it's due - I've tried playing bass left-handed and I'm useless at it, so hats off to Macca there. 😁
  7. Got meself an audio interface with a software bundle (Pro Tools/Ableton). Let the bass recording shenaningans commence. Once I've worked out how to use it all...

      Cheers guys, I’ve been messing around with FL Studio for years but have never played bass or guitar on any of my stuff, I’ve always used the presets and pasted the notes in, which can be incredibly tedious. Hoping to get going at the weekend. 😊

  8. Lucky enough to see them 3 times. Whether you like them or not, Flint was an iconic frontman and an electrifying performer. A very sad loss.
  9. Hi all, As the possibility of joining a tribute band has come up, I was wondering if any BC’ers have some experiences they’d like to share? Good and bad, funny and sad - let’s have it. 😊
  10. Yep. Sharing musical duties with a DJ at a local community club, playing through until 1am though... Happy new year BC chums.
